      The Meaning Behind Your Dog's Licks

      by Woof Report, www.woofreport.com

       Whether it's a sweet greeting or a lick of love, there's meaning in every kiss. Here are a few reasons why your pooch puckers up. Just Lickin': When a dog chronically licks himself, it can mean anything from boredom and anxiety to allergic reactions. But if your dog only has licks for you, it may be learned behavior. By responding positively and with affection to your dog's licks over time, he's learned that it's a good thing. He'll offer you a lick to make you happy and for more attention. Just for the Taste of It: Dogs are suckers for taste and smell. Lotion, dinner crumbs, and other treats are too irresistible, so those sweet smooches may come from your dog's stomach before his heart.
